exhibition Convergence 2024

Thursday, Jun 27 , 10 a.m. to Tuesday, Jul 9 , 12 p.m.

With attention to nature as a focus, the group exhibition Convergence 2024 brings together eight artists whose diverse practices overlap through connections of place and aesthetics. Housed for the most part at the Allied building in the studios of Regroupement P2 — at the heart of the Mile End, North America’s largest cultural community — these artists have developed links across disciplines, creating complementary works that come together harmoniously in the same space.

 

Photographer Martin Schop’s forays into large-format pinhole photography in images of the coastal landscapes of the Netherlands will be displayed on the walls of Galerie Espace alongside Marc Cramer’s digitally processed photographs of the birds of central Quebec. Against this backdrop, spiraling mobiles by Yves Cousineau bring wood-carved animals and spirit creatures into play, in vignettes that journey from the shores of the Atlantic through boreal forests to the Arctic, accented by Christiane Lemieux’s felted birds.

 

Silver, pearls, and acrylic are among the materials variously featured in works by three jewelers. Twisting spirals and entomological research inform Claudia Gomez’s new creations. Elin Weinstein has developed a collection of acrylic jewelry in which silver spills like organic regrowth over riffs on Tokyo’s neon signs. Silversmith Ting-Fen Chin presents vessels and teapots made of hammered silver—contemplative and poetic creations evoking natural beauty. 

 

Site-specific evolving floral arrangements by Alain Carrière, a practitioner of Sogetsu ikebana, will respond to and expand upon these works, as will tea ceremonies by Ting-Fen featuring the high mountain teas of Taiwan. 

 

Alexander and Anthony McLean bring their specialized museum installation and photography services to our team.

 

These artists, many of whom have exhibited and worked together for several years, are back with Convergence 2024 at Galerie Espace (4844 Boulevard Saint-Laurent, Montréal, H2T 1R5) from June 27 to July 9, 2024. The ‘’Vernissage’’ will be on June 27 starting at 17 hr.
